With the emergence of higher reliability and traceability requirements, an ISO/IEC 17025 certified 3rd party inspection service is essential in assuring and documenting gauge certification to today’s industry standards as well as your own product quality standards.
At 3D Engineering Solutions, we not only have the ISO accreditations needed to perform fully dimensioned gauge inspections at your site, but also the expertise to create certifiable reports that enhance documentation and audit capabilities.
We can greatly enhance the dimensional inspection aspects of your Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) and first article inspections with our portable CMM and other digitizing capabilities. Our ISO 17025 certified inspection process enables collection of more dimensional data in less time, including full modeling of parts. 3D Engineering Solutions also provides customized, ISO-certified reports in multiple formats to accommodate your quality systems and certification programs such as SAE AS9102, ISO/TS 16949 and QS 9000.
At 3D Engineering Solutions we provide full dimensional inspection services to 3D models with our advanced digitizing equipment. This allows direct scan-to-CAD model comparison, enhancing the inspection and reporting process for parts, gauges and fixtures associated with your production operation.
ISO/IEC 17025 is the main standard used by testing and calibration laboratories. There are many commonalities with the ISO 9000 standard, but ISO/IEC 17025 adds in the concept of competence to the equation. And it applies directly to those organizations that produce testing and calibration results.
There are two main sections in ISO/IEC 17025 — Management Requirements and Technical Requirements. Management requirements are primarily related to the operation and effectiveness of the quality management system within the laboratory. Technical requirements address the competence of staff, methodology and test/calibration equipment.
Laboratories use ISO/IEC 17025 to implement a quality system aimed at improving their ability to consistently produce valid results. It is also the basis for accreditation from an Accreditation Body.
